BACKGROUND: Periarticular multimodal drug injection (PMDI) has gained popularity as common postoperative pain protocols in knee arthroplasty. PMDI sites can vary, but posterior capsule (PC) is a common injection site because of its abundance of pain nociceptors. PURPOSE: To prove the hypothesis whether posteromedial drug injection alone is sufficient to provide enough effect covering the PC in order to reduce risks of neurovascular injury. Secondary outcomes are to find proper volume of injection and safe zone for PMDI injection...

INTRODUCTION: Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is a limb-threatening condition often associated with leg injury. The only treatment of ACS is fasciotomy with the purpose of reducing muscle compartment pressures (MCP). Patient discomfort and low reliability of invasive MCP measurements, has led to the search for alternative methods. Our goal was to test the feasibility of using ultrasound to diagnose elevated MCP. METHODS: A cadaver model of elevated MCPs was used in 6 cadaver legs...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical release of the lingual frenulum (frenotomy) has become an increasingly common procedure, performed from birth through to adulthood. Surprisingly, detailed anatomy of the in-situ lingual frenulum has never been described, and no anatomical basis has been proposed for the individual variability in frenulum morphology. The lingual frenulum is frequently referred to as a "cord" or "submucosal band" of connective tissue, yet there is no evidence to support this anatomical construct...

BACKGROUND: During minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, the skin is often pinched to facilitate filler injection or thread insertion into the desired layer. However, little is known about changes in the facial layers during pinch manipulation. OBJECTIVE: To determine which layer of the temple is lifted during pinching and whether the artery and the nerve are affected by pinching. MATERIALS AND METHODS: At 11 sites on 3 fresh Korean cadavers, the skin of the temple was pinched gently or deeply, and the skin pulled up was cut at the bottom...

An 82-year-old Japanese man presented with a 90 mm × 80 mm subcutaneous nodule on the left chest, not connected to the pleura, described as hypointense on T1 -weighted magnetic resonance imaging. Histologically, a well-demarcated nodule demonstrated a patternless pattern composed of hemangiopericytoma-like and short storiform patterns from the subcutis into deeper tissue. Antler-like branching blood vessels and keloidal-type collagen bundles were seen. Myxoid change was seen in hypocellular areas. Bizarre cells and multinucleated giant cells could be easily identified...

Trichoblastic carcinoma usually occurs as a malignant transformation of the trichoblastoma, but is very rare. A 25-year-old man was admitted with trichoblastoma in the nuchal area with frequent recurrences since birth. The preoperative neck magnetic resonance image revealed lobulated soft tissue lesions involving superficial fascia and infiltrating into both proximal trapezius muscles. In our department, wide excision and reconstruction with a free anterolateral thigh flap were performed. Histological examination revealed skin adnexal carcinoma, originating from the hair follicles, consistent with trichoblastic carcinoma...

Skin and soft-tissue infections (SSTIs) encompass a variety of pathological conditions that involve the skin and underlying subcutaneous tissue, fascia, or muscle, ranging from simple superficial infections to severe necrotizing infections. SSTIs are a frequent clinical problem in surgical departments. In order to clarify key issues in the management of SSTIs, a task force of experts met in Bertinoro, Italy, on June 28, 2018, for a specialist multidisciplinary consensus conference under the auspices of the World Society of Emergency Surgery (WSES) and the Surgical Infection Society Europe (SIS-E)...

Diabetes mellitus is one of the serious conditions associated with necrotizing fasciitis, a severe bacterial skin infection that spreads quickly and is characterized by extensive necrosis of the deep and superficial fascia resulting in devascularization and necrosis of the associated tissues. In addition to debridement and aggressive surgery procedures, the effectiveness of therapy depends on choosing the appropriate antibacterial agents. Hence the key to successful management is an early and accurate diagnosis...

Regional anesthesia relies on a sound understanding of anatomy and the utility of ultrasound in identifying relevant structures. We assessed the ability to identify the point at which the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) emerges through the deep fascia by ultrasound on 26 volunteers (mean age 27.85 years ±13.186; equal male:female). This point was identified, characterized in relation to surrounding bony landmarks (lateral malleolus and head of the fibula), and compared to data from 16 formalin-fixed human cadavers (mean age 82...

INTRODUCTION: A shorter penis is a frequent complaint following penile prosthesis implantation (PPI), and a large redundant suprapubic fat pad can conceal the penis and possibly compromise patient and partner satisfaction with length. AIM: To evaluate feasibility and outcome of same-session, same-incision, PPI and suprapubic lipectomy (SPL). METHODS: In 22 patients, SPL was performed through an abdominal crease incision. Through the same incision, the superficial perineal pouch was opened to gain access to the base of the penis...

BACKGROUND: It has been two centuries since Petrus Camper identified superficial fascia and over 175 years since Sir Astley Cooper wrote his book on the anatomy of the breast. In the 1990s, Ted Lockwood taught us the importance of the superficial fascia layers in body contouring procedures he pioneered. These descriptions, however, fail to explain the three-dimensional fascial system in the breast. The authors set out to discover and describe a theory of superficial fascia structures responsible for breast shape...
